Well still nothing available for garden wing, tried various dates in 2010 but nothing available so hope it's just a glitch! DH reckons we should book WL, but I think we should hold off!

So, are there balconies in the Tower? The floorplan in Post #2 looks like there is. Aside from location, that also accounts for difference in price.

Dont give up hope on the standard wings. When i had went to book an extra night months ago the day i wanted to add on wasnt available so i booked in the beginning instead. I think once the 45 day payment due came around some people must have cancelled. I was able to add an extra night onto our reservation last week and noticed there was also others available.

Yes every room in the Tower will come with a balcony.

One more day until I am back at the Contemporary

Well after 8 months of planning tomorrow my family and I will once again be back at the Contemporary and I can not wait. Also once I get home I promise to have a full trip report with a lot of photos. Finally this will be my first stay there in a long time without me do a live trip report since they got rid of the in room computers. However if you click on my profile then say e-mail me, it will go right to my BlackBerry, so if you want updates I can e-mail you back.

That is always such an exciting feeling to only be 24 hours away from WDW and the CR! Don't plan on much sleep tonight.

When your return, I'd appreciate it if you'd give us your impressions on any CR/Parks/transportation changes you've noticed since your last visit. With the '09 reductions in park/hotel staff, it's interesting to hear from those who go often about any noticeable changes (the good, the bad and the ugly) in park attendance levels, cleanliness, mousekeeping, club level, etc...

Thanks and bon voyage

For those who haven't already seen this, here is a link to a thread posted on the DIS today from an employee at the CR commenting on crowd levels after the BLT opening:

Can you try to find out the status of the PLAYGROUND at Contemporary? When will it open officially? WHERE will it be located? And, pictures if possible?

Thanks in advance!!!

I called CRO today to ask why no garden wing rooms available for Jan2010. I was told they had been loaded onto the system but were not available I can't believe they have all sold! They were very keen to offer BLT though! My DH has decided he wants WL..looks as though I am going to end up there!

Have a wonderful and safe trip! Can you access the internet/disboards from your Blackberry? My dh had great access to the internet and his e-mail on his BB. Of course it is not the same as a real computer for typing and viewing the screen.

Can't wait to hear about your trip. We chose the Contemporary for our last trip because of this thread.

Take Care!
